This associate director went off Socialcam when it dumped like a malevolently incontinent donkey all over his profile

What is your favourite website?

It has to be Google. So simple, powerful, ubiquitous, and increasingly unnerving. Though I actually find now I am using websites much less and apps much more.

What is your worst digital habit?

Two screening.

iPhone/Blackberry/Android. Which side are you on?

iPhone. It is not hype to describe it as a transformational device.

Are you into social networking? (Linkedin, Twitter, Facebook etc)

I try to resist, but continuously lapse. I have been exploring Pinterest and Socialcam recently. Went off Socialcam right away when it dumped like a malevolently incontinent donkey all over my profile.

Are you on Twitter? If so who do you recommend to follow?

I actually have two Twitter accounts, one official and one …er… unofficial. I don’t officially tweet. I follow mainly politicos, not entirely sure why, but I do find politics fascinating satire. I recommend Guido Fawkes, not at all for his politics, but because he has an uncanny habit of breaking juicy bits of news well ahead of anyone else.

What is your favourite app?

Currently Endomondo Pro.

What is your preferred means of communication? (eg. Email, phone, face to face, text etc)

A letter. When I get one these days it reminds me of a gentler age.

What did you last buy online?

A complete magician’s magic set with hat, cape, rabbit and wand. Ta da.

PC or Mac?

Always Mac, but, like most people, all very PC at work. That may change: a Raspberry Pi is on order.

Guilty pleasures: Most played tunes from iTunes/Spotify?

“Man or Muppet?” Jason Segel & Walter. Apparently. I blame my two daughters for that one.
